DURHAM graduate Nathaniel Barling has made it onto the Forbes “30 Under 30” list, one of 600 revolutionaries in 20 industries changing the course – and the face – of business and society.

Nathaniel was a graduate of the university in 2016, and just recently secured his spot on the prestigious list.

During his time at Durham, Nathaniel founded Knowhere – an AI-
powered, non-partisan US news platform.

Recalling his time at Durham, Nathaniel said: “It is a real honour to have been recognised by Forbes for what we’ve been able to build so far at Knowhere.

“I have fond memories of first incorporating the company at the Bill Bryson library in my second year, and of the university’s support and understanding – amongst college staff, my tutors and my dean at the time – as I stretched everything to the limit to both get the company off the ground and to finish my degree.

“I want Durham residents, students and alumni to know this path isn’t just open to Harvard, Stanford and MIT grads, but for us too.”

Ranked in the world top 40 for the employability of its students by blue-chip companies world-wide, Durham University offers students from all backgrounds the opportunity to participate in and experience new challenges as well as learn new skills.
